Turkey Αccusing Greece Ιs Preposterous, PM Tells Bloomberg

September 22, 2022

NEW YORK – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, said that he would have a chance respond to the statements made Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, at the United Nations when he also addresses the UN General Assembly on Friday.

He underlined, however, that “accusing Greece of crimes against humanity on the question of migration is simply preposterous,” adding that it is Turkey that has been “weaponising migrants, very openly and very publicly” for the last two years, pushing them toward the borders of Greece and Europe.

Mitsotakis explained that Greece has rescued tens of thousand of people who were at risk at sea, defending its borders as it has an obligation to do but also respecting fundamental human rights.

Regarding the country’s fiscal position, the prime minister stated that Greece was now in a much better position than it was, that the government had delivered on its promises and reduced taxes without jeopardising fiscal sustainability.
